Clear Spring Yoga PlanA Proposal to Improve Residential Life at Baylor SchoolBy: Chris Ferguson

Introduction l.jpg

The purpose of my proposal is to convince the Baylor Headmaster, Jim Buckheit, of the need to establish and support an off-campus yoga program for boarding students at Clear Spring Yoga.

Context l.jpg

Solicited? This proposal was written in direct response to a call from the Baylor School Board for ideas to improve the residential community. Therefore, I imagine this proposal will be received in a supportive, positive manner.

Physical Context: I will present a hard copy of this proposal to Jim Buckheit in person during a private meeting this September. I will not utilize any other media to present the proposal.

Audience l.jpg

Primary Audience: Jim Buckheit, Headmaster.

Secondary Audience: Associate Headmaster, Dean of Faculty, Dean of Residential Life, Chief Financial Officer.

Invoked or Addressed? This is most certainly an audience addressed. As Baylor is still a relatively small community, I have a strong working relationship established with all of the members of my audience.

Vital Statsitics: The Boarding Report Card

The BRC indicated that over 60% (or 122 students) of the Baylor boarding community finds itself “bored and restless” during the “dead time” from 5:30 to 7:30. As a result, 65% of the boarding community expressed an interest in the possibility of an optional, structured activity during that time.

The ability of boarding students to leave campus is a key component in their happiness. The BRC clearly indicates the frustration of an overwhelming majority, over 94%, who responded that the off-campus offerings during the weekare “insufficient.”
